New Flower Soft Product Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak peek from something new from Flower Soft! New Ultra Fine Flower Soft! This new FS will be released for sale February 1st! What a great new addition to the Flower Soft line-up! Take a look:

I began this card by stamping Flower Soft's stamp: Wheelbarrow with Versafine Black Onyx ink (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) onto watercolor paper. Yes, Flower Soft has stamps--check them out here. The wheelbarrow set is so fun as it has three different images that you can load the wheelbarrow with: the flowers shown, a harvest bumper crop, and an autumn scene.

I watercolored my scene and flowers with Lyra Watercolor Crayons, then die cut and embossed the wheelbarrow image with a Spellbinder's Square die (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). I hand trimmed the floral piece, then used dimensionals to apply it to the wheelbarrow image. It gave a sort of "out of the box" feel.

If you look closely at the scene, you can see the difference between the Ultra Fine FS in comparison to the regular FS. I used regular Violet FS on the purple flowers, and Ultra Fine Raspberry Fizz, Toffee, Strawberry, Sage, and Citrus Crush for the rest of the floral and moss touches. The Ultra Fine truly has a finer texture.

I wanted to create a very monochromatic look for today's design, allowing the Flower Soft to shine. Thus, I used texture for interest with a CuttleBug folder (Victoria from Our Daily Bread designs) and scored lines using my Scor-It (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). I scored my lines across the entire card design...there are scored lines running down the backside of the card, as well as the front (you can just see this in photo one).

I hope that you've enjoyed today's sneak peek...check back next Monday for another new item soon to be released from Flower Soft...you won't want to miss it!
